My second favorite non-holiday holiday is tomorrow!!!! Last year, a friend and event planner, Melissa Goodman submitted an awesome guest post with some Cinco de Mayo inspirations and I still love them! Hope you all enjoy some yummy margaritas + queso!
I love May. To me, it has to be the best month of the year. I like a reason to celebrate and there seems to be no shortage of reasons to celebrate in May. Apart from being the start of the warmer months (and the month of my birth), May has May Day, Mother’s Day, Memorial Day, Triple Crown Horse Racing and my favorite: Cinco de Mayo.
Cinco de Mayo is the perfect holiday to kick off the spring/summer party season. It celebrates a culture that uses festive colors in its traditional clothing and art AND boasts refreshing food and drink. The perfect combination for a spring fiesta.
All you need to set up a beautiful table for a Cinco de Mayo themed dinner or party are some fun, bold colors.
Dress up your table using a bright linen or funky table runner, vibrant spring flowers in a ceramic vase or repurposed tin can, and some traditional Mexican ceramic serveware.
The table will be such a stand out that you don’t have to do much beyond it to set the scene but a pretty crepe or glass bottle garland will complement it well. Now, for the festive beverages and cocktail treats!
